A MIRACLE? Virgin Mary painting caught on tape moving lips along with the Lord's Prayer (VIDEO)
The lips on a painted image of the Virgin Mary, on display at the St. Charbels Church in New South Wales, Australia, were reportedly witnessed moving along with the reading of the Lord's Prayer.
MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - The video featuring the Virgin Mary seemingly moving her lips went viral after a man named George Akary posted it to his Facebook page on July 19. It has attracted curiosity from many Christians and skeptics.
Charbel's Church films the Virgin Mary's lips moving in a painting
"I saw this during mass and at the end of mass the rosary is prayed," explained Akary. "I went to the altar and wanted to confirm via recording it... lights are not relevant and there flickering etc as I have seen this occur under various lighting and have considered those possibilities. It is what it is."
According to Akary, the pace of the congregation's prayer seemed to be parallel to the movement of the Virgin Mary's lips. Apparently, he was not the only person who witnessed the reported miracle.
Aside from Akary, a woman named Kirsten Keirouz also noticed the mysterious occurrence earlier this month and posted a clip to her Facebook page.
"I believe it was a miracle, and not just lighting because we all saw it at the same time and because her lips would start moving and then stop and start again," stated Keirouz.
Of course, skeptics still stand with what they believe in - that the alleged movements of the Virgin Mary's lips is nothing but the sum result of camera angles and lighting.
"I do not consider this to be a miracle, but I still encourage personal reflection and spirituality," stated Father Joseph Sleiman of St. Charbels Church, clearly not believing in the incident.
